SRA International, Inc., a leading provider of technology and strategic consulting services and solutions to government organizations, today announced senior executive changes to drive enhanced focus on the changing needs of its government clients, continued efficiency increases and improved positioning for growth.
Deborah “Deb” Alderson will now serve as executive vice president and chief operating officer. In this role, Alderson will have primary responsibility for and oversees the company's four main business groups – the Civil Government Group, the Defense Group, the Health Group, and the Intelligence, Homeland Security and Law Enforcement Group. Alderson joined SRA as executive vice president for Strategic Development in 2011. Over her career, Alderson has led multi-billion dollar organizations that work across the federal space; and has built a strong record of developing and implementing successful growth strategies for large organizations. She has deep experience meeting complex and challenging demands for federal government clients.
Timothy “Tim” Atkin has been named chief administrative officer and chief of staff. Atkin will continue to manage and oversee the same administration functions, and now additionally will serve as chief of staff. Atkin’s expanded role will include responsibilities to focus on driving increased efficiencies in company business practices and to coordinate efforts on cross-organizational initiatives.
“With the combined skills of the SRA executive team, I’m excited about our ability to be one of the top-performing companies in our industry,” said SRA President and CEO Bill Ballhaus. “We have a large addressable market, and Deb’s proven ability to accelerate growth in our core markets and to deliver high client satisfaction through innovative and cost-effective solutions strengthens our market position as an industry leader.”
“Tim’s government experience and successful background running multiple parts of SRA’s business complements Deb’s external client-facing focus,” Ballhaus added. “Tim intimately understands how to manage a lean organization that consistently delivers high client satisfaction.”
The executive changes outlined above are effective immediately.
